A Passionate Life Member of the Study of Religions
Introduction to this edition of JBASR.
This collection of essays in honour of Professor Ursula King is a testament to the career of a truly inspirational and ground-breaking academic in the study of religions. Professor King is one of the few academics globally who can be said to have shaped a field of study and extended it into new fields of research and discovery.
Her publications on women and religion and feminist theology still inspire young female scholars all over the world who follow her into the field of the study of religions. Her support for young scholars (female and male), that has helped so many scholars who are now at the peak of their career, is extensive and impressive. She is truly an inspiration for us with her academic work and her enormous humanity.
